Abstract

1. Here, we demonstrate a fluorescence analysis technique for discriminating between species of insect.
2. The set-up consists of a fluorescent stereomicroscope imaging system using violet and GFP filters
3. The set-up was successfully used to photograph a suite of pest and non-pest species in laboratory conditions.
4. This set-up can easily be adapted for field use increasing the scope for early detection and identification of insects with implications for automated monitoring.
